The Bravery frontman Sam Endicott is proud of the groupies he and his bandmates attract - because they're far more "intellectual" than the average selection.

The rockers have enjoyed indulging in the barrage of female company their success has afforded them, but they're pleased to note that the credentials of their lusty fans have improved somewhat.

Endicott says, "Our stance has always been that a lot of groupies are kind of gross.

"Now we're getting a slightly more intellectual/classy groupie. (They care) more about how the song has spoken to them and that kind of stuff, which is definitely more appealing than just pure booty.

"But (a groupie) once asked someone in the band to stand on her neck while she did cocaine off his shoe."
